Introducing enhanced Group moderation tools and more!
Group Message Moderation
Message moderation now allows Owners, Admins, and Mods within a Group to moderate messages that users send. These can be text, image, voice, bot commands, etc. Messages can be deleted, restored, and their history can be viewed.
As part of Group Message Moderation, we’ve also introduced the “Action panel”. Now, when you long-press on a user’s message, a new bottom menu will pop up. This contains typical Admin actions (if you can perform them) or normal user interaction options.
To access these enhanced moderation features, simply tap on a chat message; a new panel will appear, then tap “delete” on the rubbish bin icon. The message will be deleted.
To moderate a message on iOS, long-press on a user’s message. A menu will pop up. Tap delete.
NOTE: In 10.3 and above, it will show you who has deleted the message. In versions below, it will simply show a placeholders for the text and image that has been deleted. Voice message will just look like a blank voice message that you can’t interact with.
Edit History/Restore [iOS + Android]
If you have deleted or edited a message, you can review the changes. Simply long-press on the edited/deletion message. A menu will pop up with a “edit history” button. Tap this to view the message history and restore a selected message.
Admin Action History [Android Only]
NOTE: iOS already has this feature.
When an Owner, Admin, or Mod in a Group performs an action (kick, ban, silence, etc.), it will not longer display cumulatively at the bottom of the Group chat. Admin actions will now display when they happened.
Connection enhancements have been made to the contact list and Chat on Android.
Known Issue [iOS]
Please be aware that there is a current issue on iOS, where Admins CAN ONLY edit Group entry level if advanced admin is turned on. There is a fix in the works for this that will be released very soon. Thanks for your patience.
